The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced that expansion dam demolition and guiderail installation will occur at night next week on Interstate 95 in Delaware County under a project to rehabilitate pavement and several bridges on more than 11 miles of the interstate in Lower Chichester, Upper Chichester, Chester, Ridley and Tinicum townships, the City of Chester and Upland and Ridley Park boroughs.
The work schedules and locations are:
- Monday, March 13, through Thursday, March 16, a single lane closure will be in place from 7:00 PM to 6:00 AM, followed by a double lane closure from 9:00 PM to 5:00 AM on sections of northbound and southbound I-95 between the Route 420 (Exit 9) and U.S. 322 (Exit 4) interchanges; and
- Friday, March 17, single and double lane closures will be in place from 7:00 PM to 5:00 AM the following morning on northbound and southbound I-95 between the Route 420 (Exit 9) and U.S. 322 (Exit 4) interchanges.
Drivers are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area because significant backups and delays will occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.
Under this project, PennDOT states that its contractor will mill, overlay and rehabilitate the existing concrete pavement including 41 ramps; perform minor structural repairs to 15 of the 33 bridges located in the project limits; repair sections of median barrier; upgrade guide rail; install new pavement markings, delineators and rumble strips; repair and clean existing inlets and pipes; and replace damaged or missing traffic signs. The Pennsylvania Welcome Center just north of the Delaware state line also will be improved with concrete base repairs and new parking stripes, pavement markings and signs.
Allan A. Myers, Inc. of Worcester, Montgomery County is the general contractor on the project, which is financed with 80% federal and 20% state funds.
